Building a K-12 Accessibility Toolkit

Submitted by: Jessica Looney NTEN Member badge | Knowbility

Description

We must view digital educational materials through an accessibility lens if students with disabilities are to have equal access to district curriculum. The K-12 accessibility toolkit is a sanctioned resource for the necessary educational materials for teachers, parents, administrators, procurement staff, and direct service providers across the nation. This workshop highlights definitions, tools and techniques that help ensure that digital materials are built with accessibility in mind to improve educational outcomes for all students, especially those with disabilities.


Learning Outcomes

  • Learn how to support educators and district technology teams to meet diverse learning needs and improve student outcomes.

  • Help you develop accessibility statements, procurement language, and awareness materials to avoid legal liability.
